A very fun kit to build. Ideal for beginners and young children to get an understanding for Hobby Grade RC. The manual is printed about 20% larger than regular Tamiya manuals which makes reading easier. The body is highly detailed looks unchanged from the original sand rover except for the addition of some holes on the hood area of the body (used to clear the new shock towers). Pin spiked tires do their job in the grass and dirt. Overall the chassis is super tough and handles very well. Easily can withstand a brushless system if that's what you want. It comes with a 370 size motor so if you want more power opt for a spare 540 you may have around the house. Ball bearings are also a smart idea to purchase separately because the kit comes with plastic bushings.
